I posted this else where but it does hurt to post here , I guess Razz
Hi:)
I recently been trying to update my game from 1.39 to the latest patch 1.42 but I am unable to, for the lancher is not working :

1)From the lancher it fully downloads through orgin downloader then doesn't activate installwizard at all,I wait forever and still no sims 3 update installer prompt or anything. When I restart the lancher the icon that there is an update that needs to be installed is still there.

2)I tried manualing installing the update by installing via the superpatch. It goes through sims 3 installshield wizard, it fulls loads all they way and then at the end a get a message/prompt that says "update error, Invalid File Found". It goes to Installsheild wizard Complete witha message that says, "The wizard was interupted before the sims 3 could be completely patched. To patch this program at later time ,please run he patch again.Click finishh the exit the setup wizard"

3)I reinstalled orgin. Everytime I click it to start up , I get the prompt "Orgin .exe-Entry Point Not Found:The Procedure entry point wmemcpy_s could not be located in he dynamic link library MSVCR100.dll" and it doesn't open the application.
Should I have manually deleted orgin before reinstalling it again?

I'm willing to anything short of re-installing the sims 3. I have so much saved game I don't want to lose . At this point it looks like I might have to *cries*

Did you try patch downloader by FordGT Concept at MTS. You'll get it here: http://www.modthesims.info/browse.php?f=139&page=2&showType=1&gs=2

You can also try this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

It always fixes any problems I have with the game! I've haven't had to uninstall my game and reinstall it for almost a year since I started using it for all my problems with all the horrible game breaking patches this year

Thanks ladies for helping!! So thoughtful of you!! I'm going to keep those links handy "just in case". Freedom, you do know that Origin updated as well right? Make sure that it is up to date and if you are not sure, just uninstall and then re-download Origin thus hopefully solving the problem or at least you know whether or not it's your game or Origin.

Even if you do have to uninstall/reinstall you can do this without losing your game contents!! hiho

Yes, Cece is right - even if it comes to the unfortunate point where you might have to uninstall/reinstall - this will not impact your saves. Just make sure to back them up in a safe location, either elsewhere on your machine/on an external, etc. As long as you have the world installed intact that the save was created for, it should load up just fine!

I'm hoping the above fixes solve your problem, though!

Are you 100% certain that you do not have any altered game files? If you have any of the routing fixes on MTS - you need to take these out temporarily in order to correctly patch your game.

in fact why not temp wise move the mod - pacakage folder to a different place temporarily. then remove the caches files in the sims folder. eg being compositor cache
then go and try to update.if it does . then horray. but it also mean that there something in the mod package folder oops. you will move that mod package folder back . but i wonder if the game will run then. it what i would probably. in fact i do that everytime a patch come out oh yeah right.
goodluck
